Review: Walking in the Sand: A History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Ghana

User Review  - Jane - Goodreads

Well, I now live in Ghana with the Church growing rapidly. It is amazing to see what has happened the last 33 years. This book helped document the early history through the building of the Accra Temple in 2004. Interesting information and photos by an early pioneer member. Read full review

Extremely interesting book. I learned a lot about this part of Africa and how the people there view the church. It was faith building to see how The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints enriches people of all cultures and backgrounds. Read full review
